Dandy Warhols

Story by Jack Foley

THE Dandy Warhols are poised to usher in a rockin’ return to form with their sixth LP, Earth To The Dandy Warhols, their debut LP as masters of their own destiny.

Pulling together the diverse sounds and influences that have always characterized their music, it’s quintessential Dandys, full of the same dry vigor that’s made them world famous.

Earth To The Dandy Warhols is set for release on August 18, 2008 via The Dandy Warhols’ newly minted Beat The World Records, in association with Worlds Fair and Cooperative Music.

From the Some Girls-era Rolling Stones-meets-Talking Heads Welcome To The Third World, to the campy Mis Amigos, to the psychedelic rock of Beast Of All Saints, Earth To The Dandy Warhols promises to be “a pleasure of a ride that allows you to fully settle into it while still keeping you on your toes”.

The band reached out to their friends, too, inviting Dire Strait’s Mark Knopfler and The Heartbreakers’ guitarist Mike Campbell to join in on the rollicking Love Song.

While The Legend Of The Last Of The Outlaw Truckers AKA The Ballad Of Sheriff Shorty, is billed as a 21st century take on outlaw country that has Courtney Taylor-Taylor growling melodically over dusty guitar riffs.

In May, The Dandys treated fans to the party-starting opener The World Come On, in conjunction with the re-launch of their website, through which fans also can get an early jump on the album through a digital subscription service available now.

  1. KEXP (90.3 FM) in Seattle has been playing a lot of this album, and I have to say it is definately right up there, if not beyond, the best music the Dandy’s have ever put out. This one is getting purchased the day it is available, for sure.
